This was minted between 337AD and 340AD under Constantine II

Well, the backside looks to be a close as well, so it looks similar to the coin displayed on the page NumiStories. According to this page:

This particular follis was struck in 332 A.D. at the Lugdunum mint, known today as Lyons, France. The portrait shows a young Constantine II facing right in military cuirass and crowned with a laurel wreath denoting his rank as Caesar.

If this is the same, that means this coin depicts Constantine II, and dates to the 3rd century, Roman Empire.

  • I'm suspicious of your numi link, could be my own ignorance but the writing on the side with the "tails" side has different markings at the bottom. – EvanM Apr 20 '17 at 20:26
  • @ EvanM Agreed on the writing, edited by answer.The back side of the first coin you link to looks off as well. – justCal Apr 20 '17 at 20:40
  • Yep... I was looking more too. Looks like it might signify the mint it came from. – EvanM Apr 20 '17 at 20:51
